Gorgeous etching print by works on paper artist Jay Pfeil. Matted, un-framed.

Nodding Trillium is a 3 plate soft ground etching and engraving printed on acid free rag paper. I frew the plates for Nodding Trillium from plants along the Mounts to Sea Trail in spring of 2001. I am in the process of printing an edition of 95 signed, numbered, and hand-pulled etchings with no more than 12 proofs. Working and trial proofs included. This will made a total of no more than 107 Etchings. Title remains with the artist

Artwork is my life’s work. As a child I experimented with many forms of art and throughout my life that passion has grown into my profession. I originally learned artwork from my mother, Lorraine Pfeil. While in college, I made my living primarily through sculpture, crafting jewelry, and drawing portraits. My art studies lead me to San Francisco, where I earned a living as a street artist and met my future husband, Richard Sackett. My husband and I moved to Western North Carolina for its rich diversity of plants and wildlife. My enduring desire is to represent the beauty of the forest and mountains in a manner that offers to others the peace and joy I experience in creating my work. In various mediums (oil painting, bronze and aluminum sculpture, cloisonné, pottery, silk screening, block printing, etc.), I have rendered numerous images from my imagination and from the natural world. My primary medium is etchings and engravings, where I depict the natural beauty of Western North Carolina and other natural areas that have influenced my creative energy. At present I am immersed in drawing new leaves in the spring, with a special love of the native Fraser (or Mountain) Magnolia. I am also continuing to work on a number of other series, such as ‘Paths Through the Woods,’ ‘Plant Portraits,’ and ‘Full Moon,’ some of which are represented in the pictures of artwork enclosed. Through my daily mountain hikes, I strive to etch or draw my work in their natural locations. Due to the time-consuming and complex nature of etching and engraving, larger works are often finalized in my studio. It is my hope that conveying my enthusiasm and reverence for the wild world, that others may enjoy, respect, and conserve the environmental diversity that surrounds us in a sustainable, cooperative balance.
